I am simply amazed at the bullcrap I just read from “journalist” Virginia Heffernan in the LA Times.
There’s so much wrong with it, it’s almost impossible to know where to start. But let’s just begin with the beginning. The column’s title is “What can you do about the Trumpites next door?”
So yeah. Right out of the gate, you know that the last place you would ever wanna live is next door to this hideously hateful wretched cow.
Oh, heck no. The Trumpites next door to our pandemic getaway, who seem as devoted to the ex-president as you can get without being Q fans, just plowed our driveway without being asked and did a great job.
How am I going to resist demands for unity in the face of this act of aggressive niceness?
Of course, on some level, I realize I owe them thanks — and, man, it really looks like the guy back-dragged the driveway like a pro — but how much thanks?
These neighbors are staunch partisans of blue lives, and there aren’t a lot of anything other than white lives in neighborhood.
Imagine being the kind of person who makes so much of their personal character about politics that they can’t even appreciate the kind act of a neighbor. Imagine being that miserable, you guys.
She goes on to suggest, and I’m not making this up, that the kind act of her neighbors is comparable to Hezbollah caring for its elderly and sick population in Lebanon – as a way to gain loyalty.
This is the level of batsh*ttery we’re dealing with here.
She moans that when someone helps you in this way – by cleaning your driveway – “it’s almost impossible to regard them as a blight on the world. In fact, you’re more likely to be overwhelmed with gratitude and convinced of the person’s inherent goodness.”
Oh no. How horrible. QUELLE HORREUR.
She goes on to tell the story of some family she stayed with in France as a teen. The family had a portrait of a Nazi collaborator on their wall, and they explained that during the occupation, they were happy because the Nazis were polite. Instead of thinking, in hindsight, that the family she stayed with was wack and had nothing to do with her neighbors, she instead directly compares them.
Hey Ginny – how about you give us the reason you were staying with that family? Because perhaps that reason says more about you and your own family than it does about your friendly helpful neighbors.
Virginia writes, with a stunning lack of self-awareness, “What do we do about the Trumpites around us? Like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who spoke eloquently this week about her terrifying experience during the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, Americans are expected to forgive and forget before we’ve even stitched up our wounds. Or gotten our vaccines against the pandemic that former President Trump utterly failed to mitigate.
Hey dumbass. AOC exaggerated her terrifying experience, ignored the months of attacks by BLM/Antifa, and like always – made everything ALL. ABOUT. HERSELF. No wonder you’re enamored with her. And how can you not even recognize the stupidity of that last sentence – where you talk about getting “your vaccine against the pandemic Trump failed to mitigate.” The reason you have a vaccine is because of Trump. Lemme guess – you mocked him when he insisted one would be available before the end of 2020.
Amazingly, Virginia ends her piece with an almost incomprehensible amount of arrogance. She says she can’t offer her neighbors absolution for their support of Trump, but she can offer an invitation for her neighbors to “recognize the truth about the Trump administration” and “work for justice for all those whom the administration harmed.” Because, as she insists, “Only when we work shoulder to shoulder to repair the damage of the last four years will we even begin to dig out of this storm.”
The work isn’t on her end, mind you. It’s on every Trump supporter who’s expected to succumb to the demands of ignorant hateful hags like Virginia Heffernan.
If I were her neighbors, I’d take every last bit of snow from my yard and dump it onto her driveway.
(I’m guessing I’ve angered Ginny in the past, since I noticed that she’s blocked us on Twitter. If you’re so inclined, help her know that I’ve brought attention to her ridiculous, shameful, seahaggery by tweeting this article to her at @page88.)
